Have you been told that you need to improve your communication skills? Do you get your needs met by bulldozing over someone else’s needs? Or, do you tend to cave in to others and not express your needs/wants?
In the first situation, you likely have an aggressive style of communication and you may have noticed that others may be afraid of you or may avoid interacting with you. In the second situation, you may have a passive communication style and you may find that others may disregard you?
Over time, these communication styles may get in the way of you connecting with others, and your relationships may suffer as a result.
